My husband had no idea we were staying over night somewhere and as we drove into Araluen Lodge we drove into an Industrial area which was their personal shed with work utes and nowhere to really park. We had just bought a new car & were... More

Wanting to spend some quality time together on a girls weekend I booked my mother and me into an Araluen Lodge villa with high expectations - we were not disappointed! After arriving in the afternoon we sat outside on our deck having a chat and a laugh over our complimentary bottle of wine before heading out for dinner in Healesville.... More

Recently during an overnight stay at the Araluen Villas my partner and I had to leave twice during the night to get basic provisions, as we were leaving the owner yelled out from there house "ARE YOU RIGHT?" which we both thought was quite odd, on our coming back arrival we were greeted with both owners come out from our...

The comments made, were not exactly how things were. Araluen Lodge is set in a quiet and tranquil rural setting. We were woken at 2am by the sound of a car arriving at our property, a short time later a car leaving our property. At 4am we again were woken by the sound of a car, I went to the... More

What a fantastic host, you cannot put a value on Gretha's local knowledge. Everything is thought of in what is an experience not just a getaway. I highly recommend Araluen lodge for your next stay in the Yarra Valley!

Thank you Gretha for a wonderful weekend. We stayed in the main house, where the accommodation was lovely and the furnishings beautiful. The breakfast area and sitting room are just charming, especially the Dutch plates on the wall. The pool was also much appreciated. Sitting on the deck with the beautiful views, just lovely. Gretha is very knowledgable about wine... More

Everything at Araluen has been thought of for you. The fit out of the villa we stayed in was of high quality. Beautiful sheets, lovely bathroom products. And lots of really nice local hamper things ready for you when you arrive. And a beautiful bottle of local wine too. Very quiet, no traffic noise at all. Very relaxing, will be... More

A very enjoyable, relaxing weekend in the Yarra Valley. The host, Kirstein, was fantastic and made us feel like special guests. When the taxi failed to show for dinner, she arranged alternative transport for us asap. The accommodation is perfect and a little secluded for a couple's getaway. Breakfast provisions were ample and we even got a fresh grapefruit off... More

Yarra Valley's finest luxury accommodation. My wife organized a long weekend stay here a few weeks ago and it was so relaxing and serene. Gretha was lovely and took very good care of us. Would definitely stay here again and commend this place very highly to friends and family.
